Pseudosasa japonica 'Arrow Bamboo' - Arrow Bamboo is an easy-to-grow running bamboo; relatively fast spreader. It produces large coarse-textured foliage, in clusters of four to twelve leaves near the tips of the branches. It is glossy, dark green above, glaucous below, and wedge-shaped at the base. The leaf sheaths are persistent. Arrow Bamboo has been reported to make excellent hedges of heights up to 18 feet. Great for all situations from the container to the hedges. This is a cant fail plant. Running Bamboo

Bamboo is technically a grass which grows more rapidly than any other plant on the planet. New bamboo shoots can grow as much as 3 feet in one day. Bamboo has been most widely used for shelter, food, paper, jewelry, and clothes in Asia. Bamboo can be divided into two main categories: clumpers and runners. Clumpers tend to send out new shoots within a couple of feet of the clump each year. Runners, however, send out new shoots much farther from the original clump. Bamboo culms can be ten times stronger than steel. Bamboo plants like a lot of water, but they also need a well-drained soil. Bamboo is a symbol of long life, strength and versatility for many cultures of the world.
